India Women vs West Indies Women

India Women (Match Odds – 1.06):


India Women couldn’t have asked for a better start to their journey to the 2023 T20 World Cup. They set the second-highest chase in women’s T20 World Cup history, finishing with one over to spare on a challenging target of 150. Jemimah Rodrigues’ (53* off 38 balls) unbroken 58-run stand with Richa Ghosh (31* off 20 balls) proved decisive.

Jemimah had been in a slump prior to this knock, and her performance will delight the management. Meanwhile, the big-hitting Richa continues to shine, and her cameos lower in the order will be critical for the team’s chances in the tournament. Smriti Mandhana, who missed the first game due to injury, is expected to return for this one. This would help the Indian batting even more.

In the match against Pakistan, India’s bowling was a little erratic in the last half of the first innings, where they couldn’t stop the flow of runs. Deepti Sharma allowed 39 runs in four overs while taking one wicket. However, India’s most important bowler in this tournament will be the experienced off-spinner. Radha Yadav, the left-arm spinner, bowled well, taking 2-21 from 4 overs.

Full Squad:

Harmanpreet Kaur (c), Smriti Mandhana (vc), Yastika Bhatia (wk), Shafali Verma, Richa Ghosh (wk), Jemimah Rodrigues, Harleen Deol, Deepti Sharma, Radha Yadav, Renuka Thakur, Devika Vaidya, Anjali Sarvani, Pooja Vastrakar, Rajeshwari Gayakwad, Shikha Pandey

West Indies Women (Match Odds – 9.20):


West Indies Women are currently on a five-game losing streak in Twenty20 Internationals. They were defeated by England Women by 7 wickets in their first game of the 2023 T20 World Cup, despite scoring a respectable 135-7.

The biggest problem for the West Indies Women is their batting. With the exception of skipper Hayley Matthews (241 runs in 10 games at an average of 26.77 and a strike rate of 105.7) and middle-order batter Shemaine Campbelle (135 runs in 10 games at an average of 15 and a strike rate of 80.35), none of the others have really clicked. Even in the match against England, Matthews led the way with an impressive 42 off 32 balls, while Campbelle scored 34 off 37. Women like Shabika Gajnabi, Chinelle Henry, and Chedean Nation are desperately needed for the Windies.

Their bowling has also been unimpressive. At the start, Chinelle Henry and Shamilia Connell are leaking runs, and it’s up to Hayley Matthew to stop the flow with her off-breaks. Leg-spinner Afy Fletcher has performed admirably recently, but she faces a difficult task against India’s spin-savvy batters.

Full Squad:

Hayley Matthews (c), Shemaine Campbelle (vc, wk), Aaliyah Alleyne, Shamilia Connell, Afy Fletcher, Shabika Gajnabi, Chinelle Henry, Trishan Holder, Zaida James, Djenaba Joseph, Chedean Nation, Karishma Ramharack, Shakera Selman, Stafanie Taylor, Rashada Williams

The deck at Newlands Stadium is generally good for seam bowlers, with some help for spinners. In the first six overs, batters must be wary of the moving ball. Batting becomes easier once the pitch settles down, as seen in the matches between India Women and Pakistan Women and Bangladesh Women and Sri Lanka Women.

The windy weather in Newlands during the game should benefit the seamers.

India Women vs West Indies Women Prediction

In Twenty20 Internationals, India Women lead the West Indies Women 12-8. Furthermore, they have won 5 consecutive T20Is against the West Indies Women. India Women have a well-balanced team that covers all bases. Their fielding has been sloppy, and they have a habit of losing wickets in clusters, but they would be confident against this West Indian team. The spinners from India should be able to keep the Windies batters at bay. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

India Women is the favourite to beat West Indies Women at the odds of 1.06.

India Women vs West Indies Women Most Recommended Player for Bet:

Rodrigues is expected to perform once more on the 22-yard pitch against the West Indies Women on Wednesday.
